John Terpstra's fourth book of nonfiction is about to be launched. The House with the Parapet Wall began with an invitation from Paul Lisson to write something for the online journal Hamilton Arts & Letters. The invitation gave Terpstra a way to write about his mother's diminishment and eventual death. Like the book itself, this interview became a meditation on the role art can play in helping us through the loss of a loved one.
